"Anarchism is an anti-authoritarian political philosophy that rejects hierarchies deemed unjust and advocates for their replacement with self-managed, self-governed societies based on voluntary, cooperative institutions." - Wikipedia
However, as implied above, he believes that this goal to be rather farfetched and idealistic - at least in the curent world. He believes that we should prioritize working within the modern system to improve contemporary society as much as possible before even considering inciting a true revolution, which would be required for anarchy to be put into place. For this reason he supports the policies of some politicians who are much more moderate than him, such as Bernie Sanders.
